Review: Hecho En Mexico Altona

We had the pleasure of dining at Hecho en Mexico in Altona, Melbourne, and it was nothing short of a vibrant culinary fiesta. From the moment we walked in, the lively atmosphere set the tone for the evening. The d├ęcor was a colorful homage to Mexican culture, with bright murals and traditional ornaments adding to the authenticity.

The effort by Hecho En Mexico to really go all in on the Mexican theme is a delight. Life can be dreary at times so going somewhere nice and colourful certainly brightens the soul. It also just puts you in a positive frame of mind and that's got to be a good thing.

The menu offers a tantalizing array of Mexican classics. You have everything from Quesadilla, nachos, Chimichanga, Enchiladas, Fajitas and even Pambazo (a type of Mexican street food). I have to admit that I don't really know the subtlety of Mexican food of they often seem to taste similar but differ in form. Not a complaint just my own personal observation.

The menu offered a tantalizing array of Mexican classics. I started with their homemade guacamole and tortilla chips, which were fresh and flavorful. For the main course, I opted for the Chicken Enchiladas, which were a delightful mix of tender chicken, rich sauce, and just the right amount of cheese. My dining companion enjoyed the Beef Tacos, which he described as “juicy and packed with flavor.”.

Hecho En Mexico has a super extensive beverage menu. There are a number of colourful and attractive cocktails, margaritas, sangria, tequila shots, red and white wine, mocktails, beer, cider and lots more.

If you love your deep fried food then we heartily recommend having the Chimichanga. Chimichanga is a deep fried burrito with Mexican rice, pico de gallo, mint cream w salsa fresca & chipotle aioli with fillings ranging from grilled chicken, shredded beef , chorizo & potato, chilli con carne, pulled pork, frijoles charros (vegetarian) or veggie chilli con carne. You also get to choose the hotness of the salsa (Mild/Medium/Hot).

Hecho En Mexico conveniently has Mexican styled hats that you can try on. Perhaps tacky but great for a selfie and I can imagine with a big group of friends you could have a lot of fun taking a few pix.

At the rear of the restaurant is a nice openish area that is very chilled out. When the weather is great I imagine this would get quite crowded and with a footy match on very busy even in the winter months (with the heaters on). The effort to keep this area Mexican styled is very cool too.

In a nutshell
